Steve’s Index Ride 2017

Event Details

This route is a peach; developed by Steve Rossano, it travels from Monroe to Index via the old pass road, following mostly backroads (very scenic). There are stretches of riding the shoulder of US 2 (three miles each way) between Sultan and Gold Bar; not too bad, and on the return trip most of that can be avoided by following the Kellogg Lake option. This option is not without its drawbacks, it is a bracing climb and a howling descent. Great fun, but a bit of work. Or you can ride on US 2, which is five miles shorter. 😉 Redmond Cycling Club
